EbonyLife Films’ Chief Daddy Netflix release party
Lagos, 14 March 2019. The crew and star cast of the Chief Daddy movie, including Mo Abudu, Niyi Akinmolayan, Kate Henshaw, Funke Akindele, Ini Edo, Dakore Egbuson, Ajoke Silva, Taiwo Obeleye and other renowned guests celebrated the launch of the movie at the Netflix launch party, held in Lagos on Tuesday, 12 March.
“It’s always our pleasure to partner with Netflix” stated Mo Abudu, Executive Producer of Chief Daddy. With a partnership that started in 2015 with FIFTY, then in 2017 with The Wedding Party and now in 2019 with Chief Daddy, Mo Abudu says the EbonyLife Films team can’t wait for feedback from the diaspora – and comedy fans in general – to pour in from around the world. “This is our third film to find a home on Netflix – and it gets more thrilling every time,” she says. “We’re delighted to have such a powerful partner take this film global and we can’t wait to see the reaction to it, from around the world”.
Having dominated the West African box office in 2018, Chief Daddy’s heavyweight brand of comedy is available right now on the world’s most popular streaming service.
When Lagos-based billionaire Chief Daddy keels over suddenly at the dinner table, there’s a scramble amongst family members, household staff and mistresses for a slice of his fortune. But there’s a catch – a codicil to his will declares that they must find a way to work together to arrange his funeral, or risk losing everything.
